Firstly, My apologies…I’m late in posting. Second… this topic seemed easy, until I tried to write!
I am a 38 year old mom of four beautiful children, three daughters and one son. I am a wife…a daughter, sister, friend. I’m married (for the second time) to the sweetest, hardest working man I know. He would do anything for any of us, without a thought. I really love him.
Growing up I was always determined and yet really shy and sensitive. I still am. I take things too much to heart. I overreact and say things I wish I hadn’t. I was the ‘smart kid’ in my family, the first to graduate high school, the ‘should be, could be’ kid. I didn’t choose career, I chose family. I suppose I should be able to do both, but I can’t. Not in a way that I feel good about. I feel like a child-woman, inside. I look at the other moms and wonder why I can’t do everything the way they do. They are the ‘real grown ups’ lol. They make it look so easy, they even make it look fulfilling. When I’ve worked full time I felt like I was running a race that never stopped. I felt like I was missing out on my kids, on my family…like the job was keeping me from my life, which was flying by anyways. If that makes any sense!
I love to create things, I always have. I started crafting when I was little. Macrame, knitting, sewing, crocheting, embroidery, cross stitch… you get the idea 🙂 My mom used to say I never finished anything…so now I’m careful to finish MOST things.
I’ll likely add to this…as I said, this subject is HARD.
Thanks for reading!
